Answer

In general, children with isolated asymptomatic microscopic hematuria tend to do well, whereas those with associated findings (eg, hypertension, proteinuria, abnormal serum creatinine levels) are more likely to have serious problems. Because hematuria is the end result of various processes, the morbidity and mortality rates of the condition depend on the primary process that initiated it.
